Some Sabres action later this evening, maybe?

It's Eastern Conference day in the NHL as first the Islanders are at the Lightning at 3pm EST (NBC, CBC, TVAS) leading the series 1-0. Then at 8pm EST (NBC, CBC, TVAS) the Capitals are hosting the Penguins, leading 1-0 as well. However, just before puck drop in that game in Washington is the small matter of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft Lottery.

Click here for a primer on the lottery tonight and what it entails.

Apologies for the lateness of getting this thread posted, the Lightning lead 2-1 and we're just into the second period.
